Nosara residents who are insured, have a risk factor and are between 16 and 57 years old, may go to the Nosara’s Ebais to request the Covid-19 vaccine.

This was confirmed by Johnny Jiménez, a health technician at Nosara’s Ebais, who stated that this also applies to resident foreigners who are up to date with their Social Security payments.

A risk factor is defined as any patient with:

  • Arterial hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic respiratory diseases
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Grade III and morbid obesity
  • Systematic sclerosis
  • HIV-AIDS
  • Transplants
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Systematic Lupus Erythematosus
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Myasthenia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Cerebral paralysis

(The vaccine does not apply to pregnant women)

Jiménez also explained that in the case of those patients who are treated in private medical services, they must present a certificate in printed form from a doctor certifying the risk factor they have.

For those people who recently moved to Nosara and are still enrolled in another health area in the country, they can make the transfer to the Nosara’s Ebais by personally visiting the Ebais (located in downtown Nosara, near the airport). The Ebais de Nosara’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. at 4 p.m.

Note: At the time of being vaccinated, the medical center will give you a vaccination card where the date of the second dose must be written. The Ebais will not call you back, so check the date.
